Workaround


If you have created Setup Project through visual studio Please make sure that Visual studio Property


DetectNewerInstalledVersion Property is set to False.


Details


If this property is True(Default Setting),Visual studio changes the Product code with New Build But it keeps the upgrade Code Same.


It would Create Problem if you use the same Setup Project and make changes to it with Saving it as Different Project.

    I would like to change the default message returned from DetectNewerInstalledVersion = true.  Is this possible? (timsimonetti@gmail.com)

    Tim, you could change the VSDVERSIONMSG text in the Property table of the MSI installer through Orca.
